Called an "official release" from the Sunshine Daydream YouTube page. Nothing like sweaty naked hippies in HD. Thank God it's not in Smell-O-Vision.

not just run of the mill nudity, but earthy, comedic nudity. With bright red jigglers and dangling swinging meat sticks...the human body just isn't that pretty to look at without some photoshop assistance and a bit of shaving...or a lot of beer.

Only once have I seen an attractive person do the nude rush on the stage...and it was damn funny. She was a tall blonde with not a stich of clothing, climbed the wall at the Greek and got on stage. One of the backstage roadies got hold her and slung her over his shoulder and carried her back stage. Moon in the air while she was kicking her legs the whole way, looked like something from a caveman movie - that got a rousing cheer! All other instances of nudity were generally unpleasant and uncalled for...like naked guy climbing he scaffolding while everybody just looks on in disgust - nobody wants to get too close to that. 300lber doing a striptease or pant less guy walking through the crowd dry humping anybody who doesn't get out of the way fast enough until he hits a big hairy biker...ouch that must have hurt.

God created clothing for a reason!

Here's the thing: people "back in the day" who shed their clothing in the throes of musical and lysergic ecstacy didn't
do it for your, or my, or anyone else's enjoyment or appreciation or edification or - judgement. They did it because they didn't give a second thought to their surroundings, didn't give a rat's ass, were truly living in the moment, in a phrase...were truly feeling free. No one's to care whether they're acceptably attractive enough. That's the idea. You might find this attitude still prevalent at a Rainbow Gathering or at Women's Music Festivals and certainly at burning Man if one can avoid scorching oneself.

re: people "back in the day" who shed their clothing... how about a regular day off from work?

hanging at the nude beach is vastly different than going to a public event, getting super stoned and burning your dangler to a crisp. Is that really freedom?

I've got nothing against, actually I love to, swim nude in high mountain lakes. I've got pictures but I won't scar anyone's eyes with them...that is my wife's contractual obligation. I've spent may hours worm dangling(not fishing) on the Matole River, our Humboldt nudist get away. I like to put the high in High Sierra, and then cause some shrinkage with a dip in the ice water.

But folks who run naked through fully clothed crowds are looking for some notice...especially when they climb the scaffolding.

classic quote from the comments section

"WHY IS EVERYONE NAKED? For heaven’s sake, what was wrong with you people? Any excuse to get your kits off and start helicoptering your wangs around…"

Oh man, that poor woman at the 5:30 mark. Everything the Good Lord gave her is all burnt and crispy.
